Thanks, Chaba. The colors of the ocean and sand here in Hawaii are constantly changing. Even the shape of the beach changes daily. I had been to this spot numerous times before seeing the foreground rock. #2213842

Pat and Gary, thanks to both of you for the comments. You both have some great shots in your galleries. Hope the weather holds for you, Pat. While the weather here is certainly nice, I'd love to have a good storm roll through now and again for some dramatic photography.
